Forum: classic_tv Subject: Re: Ozzie and Harriet

And the final season (1965-1966) was filmed in color! :).

For such a mellow sitcom, Ozzie & Harriet was on the radio & TV airwaves WAY too many years. It was OK, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see them again. The last time was in syndicated reruns on a long defunct Delaware UHF station that I was able to receive on my cable TV system back in the 1980s.

If you really were desparate you could seek out "Ozzie's Girls" from the early 1970s, which brought Ozzie and Harriet Nelson back to TV for 1 season. That and Rod Serling's Night Gallery were the last things they did before Ozzie died.

...At least "Ozzie and Harriet" got cancelled after they ran out of storylines. "The Simpsons" has been running so long they are getting desperate!:

Ozzie and Harriet ran out of storylines years before it went down in the ratings. The only thing that kept it "fresh" in later seasons was having the real-life wives of Rick and David playing their wives on TV, but the plots were still limited.

The Nelsons really capitalized on Rick emerging as a rock star, so by the time he was in his late teens and well into his 20s he got to perform 1 song in almost every episode.

I agree with you about The Simpsons, but then I've always hated that show. It's hard to believe that's still going after nearly 20 years.

Who cares about my opinion? Well, I do for starters. I'm sure there are others here too who may find some of the TV trivia of value to them if they've never seen some of these shows.

Diana should kick you off the forum for being so hostile. Have you been skipping your meds lately? :)
